  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, pumpkin spice, baking powder and salt.
  2. In another large bowl using a hand mixer, beat the butter and sugars together until creamy. Add egg and beat until incorporated. Add pumpkin and vanilla and beat again. Add the dry ingredients and beat until just combined. Divide dough into two discs and refrigerate until chilled, at least 2 hours and up to 3 days.
  3. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Working one disk at a time, on a floured surface, roll out dough to ¼-inch thickness. Cut out the cookies using a pumpkin cookie cutter and place them on the prepared baking sheets. Roll up leftovers and cut out more cookies. Freeze cookies for 15 minutes.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350°. Cut faces out of half of the cookies using a paring knife. If the dough gets too hot, refreeze the cookies to make it easier and before baking to make sure they hold their shape.
  5. Bake until set, 8 to 10 minutes. Let cool completely.
  6. Make the Frosting: Meanwhile, in a large bowl using a hand mixer, beat cream cheese and powdered sugar until smooth. Add the vanilla and a pinch of salt and stir to combine.
  7. Flip faceless cookies over and spread with frosting. Top with a cookie with a face.
